1. A method of roentgenographic examination of the upper end of the femur in the lateral position has been presented.

2. The method is particularly adapted to the study of fractures of the upper end of the femur.

3. It has been demonstrated that examination in the anteroposterior position is inadequate in detecting deformity which may be present following fracture and attempted reduction.
